  • There has been an explosion of both the incidence and medical knowledge of viral hepatitis over the last two decades. Not only is the incidence of infection and disease increasing, but new hepatitis viruses have been discovered, as well as the launch of new pharmaceutical products. Previously published by Churchill Livingstone, Viral Hepatitis by Zuckerman & Thomas was the first comprehensive book on hepatitis and is recognized as the standard reference text in this field. The new third edition, now published by Blackwell Publishing, addresses the recent advan
